Happy Monday! We have a big week ahead of us at the State Capitol:
On Tuesday, January 25th, the Health Finance and Policy Committee will hold its first hearing of the MinnesotaCare Public Option Bill (HF11). This bill would ensure that more Minnesotans could receive quality, less expensive healthcare by expanding access, increasing affordability, and closing coverage gaps.
Watch the hearing live at 3:00 p.m. CST here. We’ll be streaming it live on Facebook, too – share our post to host a virtual watch party for your community! Everyone should have a voice in this conversation.
Minnesotans need to stand together in their call for increasing access to healthcare. Here’s how you can get involved and advocate for the healthcare that ALL Minnesotans deserve:
- Raise your voice – tweet at and tag your representatives on social media with hashtags #ExpandMNCare, #MNCares, and #WeCare4Us.
- Contact legislators via email here. Ask them to support the MinnesotaCare Expansion bill and all legislation to make health care and medicine more accessible.
- Your story has power – share your healthcare experience here.
In Minnesota, we know how to care for each other, and we know that the health and wellbeing of one of us impacts us all. Together, we can ensure everyone has access to the care they need — regardless of age, income, or immigration status.
